It's March friends! In mid-coast Maine March is a weird time of limbo- winter has changed it tune but there are still a lot of really cold and windy days ahead. I always find myself wishing for signs of spring this time of year but it's just not going to happen for a while. But what I can't see on the ground, i can make up for in yarn! With that I am proud to introduce March's Color of the Month, New Leaf!
New Leaf is a bright and springy green variegated colorway that starts with some soft turquoise and then gets a pour over of ecru and lemon yellow. I finished it off with a touch more turquoise and gold and Copenhagen speckles!
This colorway was a lot of great layers in it and will be very insteresting knit up on its own. If you were looking to pair it with something I would recommend Narwhal, Hardwater, Exclipse, Sugar Cookie, or Rebel.

I've decided that instead of offering a surprise club offering every month, I would prefer to offer a Color Of The Month. Personally, I don't care for surprise colorways and would rather know what I am purchasing and I would like to extend the courtesy to you so I will be creating a colorway of the month (only available in that month, while supplies last) on a special base now INSTEAD of my Spontaneous Sock Club.
And as for the base...
Spontaneous Sock Yarn is a 4 ply yarn containing 75% Superwash Wool 25% Nylon Yarn. This is a medium grade wool that makes a durable and springy yarn perfect for items that will be worn and washed a lot! My favorite part about this yarn is that is takes dye so well and produces strong and vibrant colors.
This yarn is certified cruelty free.
Superwash yarn is machine washable in a gentle cycle with like colors, lay flat to dry. I've had a pair sneak into the dryer before and that won't ruin it, but whatever you make will last much longer if you air dry.
This fiber was handdyed by ontheround using professional quality acid dyes. I dye my yarn in small batches and no skein will be 100% the same- that's what makes working with hand dyed yarn so fun!
I do my very best to accurately photograph my yarns but please note that not all monitors are the same. My yarn is made in my smoke-free, pet free studio in Rockland Maine.
